I'm originally from the North East of Thailand, and so are most of my employees. They quickly had to learn not to answer calls from unknown numbers. I cook lunch every day at work and we take turns to eat. When I opened my first parlour, I had no idea what I was getting into. This article originally appeared on, vICE Sweden, two weeks ago, Stockholm police raided a local Thai massage parlour and arrested its 38-year-owner. I'd say 90 percent of my customers are women, athletes or couples. My employees know they are safe when they work for me but they've also told me many horror stories regarding places they worked at before. Apart from being closed-door businesses, these places had something else in common: they all had big Thai flags by the entrance. Our standard massage costs 500 SEK 45, but we also have a jacuzzi, sauna and manicure area. Sometimes I let my ex-husband answer the phone so he would scare them off.
